Watch Blood Orange Debut “One thing To Do” & “Darkish Good-looking” On Corden

58


This previous weekend, Blood Orange performed what regarded like one hell of a Coachella set. Devonté Hynes opened up with a largely solo-acoustic cowl of Neil Younger’s “Coronary heart Of Gold,” and he introduced Tei Shi and Lil Yachty to the stage for “Hope.” He made the stage his personal, which is de facto an important factor that an artist can do at Coachella. And now he’s additionally made the many of the weekend between Coachella festivals, debuting two new songs on James Corden’s Late Late Present.

Blood Orange’s most up-to-date album Negro Swan is lower than a 12 months previous, and but the 2 new songs that Hynes sang on Corden recommend a slight change of course. “One thing To Do” is a quick throat-clearing of a track, a hazy guitar-and-voice reverie. It largely works as an intro to “Darkish Good-looking,” a beatific soul ballad constructed on an 808 thump. The synthy, woozy observe contains a pumped-in verse from an as-yet-identified rapper, and there’s a pattern of a screwed-up rap verse on the finish. On first pay attention, it’s a heavy track about identification and anxiousness, and I can’t wait to listen to the right recorded model.

Hynes at all times places cautious work into how he presents his songs, and this was no exception. Removed from a typical late-night efficiency, this was staged as some form of out of doors lullaby. Hynes began out mendacity down on an Astroturf floor, subsequent to a British flag. Behind him, 4 backup singers sat on park benches. There was no seen band, and Hynes could have been lip-syncing. He additionally stared down the digital camera laborious on the finish. Watch it under.

Negro Swan is out now on Domino. Fingers crossed for a brand new single launch this week.
